Date Posted: Jan 2, 2008 at 03:03:22 AM


Prompting compassionate individuals to improve the lives of Filipinos belonging to the marginalized sector are disturbing images and actual pictures of poverty, like the one documented on a video by concerned Vincentian priestsheaded by executive director of Homeless People's Federation Philippines, Fr. Norberto Carcellar, C.M., 2007 $100,000 Opus Prize Finalist, along with others.

 

Dwelled by our economically-challenged fellows, Payatas in Quezon City has been featured by several studies and documentary programs exposing and uncovering common underprivileged Filipinos' unfortunate conditions. Journey your way to the slums, have a feel on how it is to live on a densely populated and socially disorganized locale, and get yourself engaged on more significant advocacies by visiting http://www.opusprize.org/winners/07_Carcellar.cfm

 

(Homeless People's Federation Philippines is an organization that has enabled squatters living on a sprawling garbage dump in Quezon City, Philippines to create community savings and credit programs, purchase land, build housing and set up waste disposal and water distribution systems.)
